Only a short walk from the Lahaina harbor, long-standing Maui destination restaurant Pacific’O’s gorgeous split-level dining room looks out onto the Maui coastline, hinting at the promise of the ocean’s seafood bounty. Chef James McDonald’s menu highlights both land and sea, from his innovative “Hapa/Hapa” Tempura to his Tahini-and-Tamarind-Roasted Australian Rack of Lamb. Most of the produce at the restaurant comes from upcountry O’O Farm (owned also by McDonald), an 8.5-acre farm in Kula that grows heirloom lettuces, fennel, asparagus, herbs, cherimoya, avocado, strawberries, and pohaberries, among other crops.
